Glaucoma is a chronic eye disease in which the optic disc becomes progressively cupped, as axons die off. Curiously, this is the only optic nerve disorder in which severe cupping takes place. Vision loss takes place due to progression of the disease. Very few signs or symptoms are present in progression of disease and the vision loss from glaucoma is irreversible. Detecting the disease in time is important, as it cannot be cured. Current tests using intraocular pressure (IOP) are not sensitive enough for population based glaucoma screening.

Personalized web search (PWS) has improved various search services on internet. Now a days, as the reluctance of the users has been increased to hide their private information while searching.
